Qatar spares no effort to eradicate hunger in the world, HE the Deputy Chairman of the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) Dr Mohamed bin Saif al-Kuwari has said. While talking to Qatar TV, al-Kuwari said NHRC is currently focusing on the upcoming Food Justice Conference.
Under the auspices of Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs HE Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim al-Thani and in partnership with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions (GANHRI) and the Arab League, NHRC will hold the conference on February 6-7. The conference will be held from a human rights perspective.
“The conference aims to emphasise the importance of food reaching every person without discrimination. Eliminating hunger is the first sustainable development goal by the year 2030 and the conference is one of our efforts through which we exchange opinions and thoughts with the world about eliminating hunger. We must try by all means and methods to eliminate global hunger by the year 2030,” he said.
While explaining the main topics to be discussed in the conference, al-Kuwari said the most important focus is reviewing the legislation and laws that stipulate food and its importance. “It’s an inherent right of every person in any country, state or province, to have sufficient, safe, sound and healthy food available to each of them,” he said.
He explained that Qatar is the first country to serve any cases of hunger in the world, whether the cause is climate change, wars or conflicts. “You will find that Qatar’s planes do not stop. The planes are heading to the needy in Gaza to provide their food needs. Qatar spares no effort in providing assistance to eliminate hunger in any country in the world. Qatar helps and strives to solve the problems of others,” he said.
